This might be a little bit tricky.
Although there are plenty of Americans willing to do the job of collecting EITC benefits, they don't want to become illegal aliens first in order to culminate the scam...

In Thursdayâ€™s edition of stories ignored by the top English and Spanish networks, the six of them declined to report that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has admitted that illegal immigrants could apply for back taxes under President Obamaâ€™s amnesty plan.
Concerning the IRSâ€™s admission regarding illegal immigrants, host Bret Baier stated the following in the first brief:
The IRS confirms illegal immigrants can collect back taxes under president Obama's amnesty plan.
In written responses to Senator Chuck Grassley, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen admitted that illegals granted amnesty will be (able to) claim refunds
on returns they never filed because of the earned income tax credit.
A Washington Times article added how, under normal circumstances, â€œ[t]axpayers must have Social Security numbers in order to claim the EITC, and illegal immigrants aren't supposed to have numbers.â€ Under the Presidentâ€™s amnesty, illegal immigrants would be given work permits and then allows them to receive Social Security numbers.
Once thatâ€™s done, the Times piece went on to explain that:
â€œIRS lawyers have ruled that once illegal immigrants get numbers, they can go back and refile for up to three previous years' taxes and claim refunds even for time they were working illegally.â€
